Given that there is no proper way to install them in the first place, I'd refer to any recommendations of the program that put those changes there. – vcsjones Dec 24 '10 at 5:49

The only solution might be to change those icons individually. You should find the original by going to Properties -> Customize -> Change Icon and replace the shell.dll by imageres.dll You'll find a number of icons including the original
